Safety Town is a safety awareness program held each summer for children who will be entering kindergarten or first grade in the fall. Each day, the program explores a different safety topic, including stranger awareness, water safety, fire safety, pedestrian and bicycle safety, animal safety and school bus safety. All Safety Town instructors are state-certified elementary school teachers.
Safety Town was launched in 2004 with the support of Key Bank and the New Albany Women’s Network through the New Albany Community Foundation. Since then, approximately 3,000 children have graduated. The New Albany Chamber of Commerce has recognized Safety Town as its Community Program of the Year, and continued support from the New Albany Women’s Network and other sponsors has been integral to the success of this now well-established program.
